to another topic, and it yielded a surprising set of answers from defense secretary leon panetta, and the joint chiefs chairman, general martin dempsey. arizona republican john mccain asked about a report that president obama rejected a proposal to arm syrian rebels last summer. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state... then secretary of state clinton and then head of c.i.a. general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? did you support that? >> we did. >> you did support that. >> we did. >> suarez: so far, the president's judgment has been that things won't get better with american arms. instead, he's warned the weapons might fall into the hands of extremist elements, a concern reiterated today by the new secretary of state, who was asked about the deliberations last year. >> i don't know what the discussions were in the white house and i'm not going backwards. the new administration, we're going forward from this point. there are serious questions about al nusra and a.q.i.-- al qaeda in iraq-- and other violent groups on ground. >> sua
leon panetta. boy, a blistering attack against congress. can't wait to talk to jane about that. also, john mccain's changing his tune. we praised him yesterday. so he had to reverse course, i guess. so now he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, brea
forces farewell tribute today in honor of defense secretary lienon panetta. he will be at joint base myer henderson at 4:00 this afternoon. this is the formal goodbye for panetta stepping down from his position. yesterday, he testified over the attacks in benghazi where he revealed there was no advanced warning for those attacks. he said that factor plus the time and distance involved prevented the u.s. military from reaching the consulate before four americans were killed. panetta also confirmed he personally broke the news to president obama the night of the attack but that the two did not speak the rest of the evening as the assault continued to unfold. the president had told panetta to do whatever he needed to do to protect our people out in benghazi. today, house democrats wrap up their annual retreat with a little comedy. stephen colbert is speaking to the caucus thanks to an invite from nancy pelosi. after his comedy routine, pelosi will interview colbert in front of the house democrats. a spokesman said they assume this is colbert's attempt at a

's revenge campaign against the lapd left four people dead, including two cops. >>> leon panetta will remain the defense secretary for at least a few more days. republicans in the senate have blocked a vote on chuck hagel's nomination. and since congress is in recess for the president's day holiday, the next time the nomination can be taken up is a week from monday. president obama accused republicans of playing politics. but they deny it. >>> and also, senator frank lautenberg makes it official. he will not run for his current term. he is the oldest member of the senate. he will not seek a sixth term. that eliminates a primary battle between newark, new jersey, mayor, cory booker. he's announced his intent to run for the senate in december. >>> and rahm emanuel is reportedly considering a white house run in 2016. "the daily beast" says imew ema would run if hillary clinton does not. emanuel used to be president obama's chief of staff, in addition to working in the clinton white house, as well. we just had the inauguration. already, the chatter about 2016. >> throwing it in. >> it's always t
@wbaltv.com. >> today was expected to be leon panetta's last day but he is staying on longer. >> tara mergener is here to tell us why. >> it could be another 10 days before a new secretary of defense takes the helm. the senate fell two vote short of advancing chuck hagel's nomination. the senate once more information on the attack in benghazi. the white house accuses republicans of playing politics in wartime. another vote is scheduled for chuck hagel's confirmation. >> is the confirmation expected to happen? >> it actually is, that republicans have concerned about his temperament. republicans will allow a simple vote after the recess. it is looking good at that point for chuck hagel. >> how unusual was yesterday's vote? >> the senate has only rejected nine nominees. 21 were withdrawn. two times have they impose the 60 vote threshold. but never for the present's pick for the defense secretary. >> tara mergener, thank you. >> 5:27. 31 degrees at the airport. >> candidates have until noon today to file. >> a fake rice? the message the star running back is sending out about avoiding the other ray rice. >
the testimony last week by secretary of defense panetta and chairman dempsey revealed a vacuum of leadership at the top of the obama administration that i found not only unprecedented but shocking and very, very disturbing, that the president wasn't intimately involved in worrying about these americans under attack, worried about other americans elsewhere in the middle east, in north africa, possibly being under attack, the lack of contact between the secretary of defense and the secretary of state. i mean this is a -- we face a threat in that region, the president is nowhere close to adequately dealing witness. i hope he talks about it tonight. he certainly didn't in his inaugural address. bill: would you expect that? i'm not counting on it. i don't think the president pays adequate attention to international affairs. i suppose he'll say something about north korea because he doesn't have any choice. bill: john bolton thank you. hemmer@fox news.com. bya, because you asked, just one line is all we need. martha: this story and this man who is a doctor are getting a ton of attention after he m
yesterday that it wasn't him. secretary panetta said it wasn't him. in hearings, the acting d.c.i. mike morell said it wasn't him. ambassador kennedy said it wasn't him and the f.b.i. said it wasn't them. we've eliminated a lot of people who had contacts within the intelligence community that knew firsthand what was going on in benghazi. let me ask you again: who briefed the president on actually what was happening throughout this seven-hour period? who was your primary point of contact in the intelligence community? >> as chief of staff, i didn't usually reach out directly to the intelligence community. i worked through the national security staff. >> was there anybody from the intelligence community in that briefing session on a continual basis to your knowledge? >> the intelligence community was in close touch with the white house, with the national security team on a near constant basis. >>steve: it's pretty clear nobody was briefing the president of the united states. it was -- keep in mind it was a couple of months before the election, and clearly the picture we are getting right
, saying good-bye to secretary panetta to say this would be bad from the economy. i expect to see more of that coming up. >> the gop is willing to dig in its heels and bet the president will take the blame in the court of public opinion. charles krauthammer says the republicans finally have leverage, they should use it. the republicans need to reiterate that the sequester was the president's idea in the first place. do they run of risk of having this backfire? >> look at the polling, republicans end up on the shortened of the stick and get the blame. republicans in congress signed off on this deal, whether or not they were the ones that pushed for it in the end, they did agree to it and did vote for it. blame can be passed off to both sides on this issue, certainly, republicans doing their level best to try to put the blame on the president's lap. whether it succeeds, look, two, 2 1/2 weeks to go until the deadline. we'll see if they can gin up enough interest and blame. we're back to pointing fingers on who is to blame all of this. >> you think the democrats are convinced they have th
. and panetta revealed they didn't talk for eight hours while this whole thing was going on. >> right, right, and-- >> go ahead. >> it it can be important for a president to oversee something like this. i don't know if you remember, but it was directly reagan ordering the invasion of granada and advised against it, he said no, i don't care, there are americans there, we're going in and followed it up saying, don't worry you can always trust the american people. and this is new information, now. i mean, on one hand it kind of depresses me to keep going through what a shocking outrage benghazi was because anyone who cared knew about it before the election and still obama was reelected. on the other hand, this is new information, the media was desperately trying to make sure obama got reelected. you know, maybe they wouldn't cover this now. i think whenever you talk about benghazi, it would be useful to play a little clip of hillary and susan rice claiming it was this american-- egyptian-american film maker out here in l.a. and some siller trailer he put online. they lie about this and an ameri
. >>> outgoing defense secretary leon panetta revealed for the first time that there was a plan in place to support rebels in syria. but that plan was vetoed by president obama because of worries that the weapons might fall into the wrong hands. more than 60,000 people have died in syria's civil war. >> by the way, i was just going to add to that civil war. it's cost that country the equivalent of $48 billion. when you think about a war, our war obviously has cost us trillions of dollars. but a country that has no money, and they're relying on us for help, $48 billion is a lot of money. >> and the u.s. has given syria about $210 million in aid to help those insurgents along. but this issue of whether we arm them is one. after two wars and libya, maybe the country was not ready to get involved in another country. but we put these arms in syria, how do we know they're not going to get in the hands of terrorists? and on the other side, the opposition groups look at the u.s. and say where are you guys? that makes them bitter towards us and more likely to link hands with those same terrorists
leon panetta. he will remain on the job for defense secretary a little while longer. senate republicans have there aed a vote on chuck hagel to replace him for another ten days, using an unprecedented filibuster. unprecedented for defense nominee. president obama says they are putting politics ahead of national security. >> i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan and need a secretary of defense who is coordinating with allies to make sure our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission they deserve. >> mean tooil, the president returns home to chicago today for the last in a series of campaign style events. this week they are focused for plans on the economy and education that he outlined in the state of the union address. gun violence also on the agenda when the president speaks to a chicago high school. dan lothian live at the white house with a preview. homecoming of sorts, dan. >> the president will be speaking at hyde park academy, and as you pointed out, the main focus will be the economy. but the president will be talking about gun violence in a city that last year
testimony on benghazi from general petraeus, hillary clinton, admiral mike mullen, leon panetta, martin dempsey, but it's not enough. republicans want to know what happened as the attack in benghazi went down and who changed those talking points. they want more answers from the president. so dana, is chuck, is the blockage of chuck hagel's confirmation because of benghazi, as lindsey graham illustrates or is it because of something else? >> reporter: it is mostly because of chuck hagel. benghazi was, they sort of have been on a crusade to get more answers for benghazi and like you see many, many times here in the senate, they saw chuck hagel and his nomination as a way to use that as leverage to get answers and they did, they got an answer about what the president's role was on that day. but really this is mostly about chuck hagel and you know, john mccain is actually the perfect example of why it is about the man himself, and that is he said last night after he had kind of given lots of different explanations, all of them i think are credible from his point of view, that the real funda

of bin laden. panetta said so. the hypocrisy the democrats have lambasted that but obama killed scores of people with these drones. these are fine if they're used for actual surveillance and receiving good information, but they should not be used for just random fishing expeditions. >> maria? >> you know, carol, in an ideal world, of course, it would be better to do that and that way i think the justice system would be carried out as we all believe that it should but at the same time we're not living in an ideal world and we're not living and we're not executing a war that is a kind of war that we have executed in years past where it's country against country. these are terrorists who are living under rocks, in caves, in mali and in yellemen. if there is a target and we know where he is and send a drone in and we know that person has killed americans, a lot of americans believe that is the way we should go. >> question number two, for republicans it seems like out with the old and in with the new. fox news parting ways with some of its more partisan contributors, sarah palin and dick m
, the pentagon, leon panetta, the outgoing defense secretary, saying this is really going to effect our readiness, our ability to protect the country and prevent war and everything else. we're supposed to let that happen? >> yeah. well, i think the president while he doesn't want the domestic spending cuts to go through, he actually does want the military cuts to go through. this is why i think the republicans should call his bluff and play their card and say we're coming to you with responsible spending cuts but no more tax hikes. see how the president answers that. and if he doesn't, jon, i agree with charles krauthammer, let the sequester go through and the spending cuts go through because we have to begin somewhere. jon: and it becomes part of the obama legacy at that point. monica crowley, thank you. jenna: one question, one health question we're taking a look at today is can you actually seeville in the human body? -- evil in the human body? a german scientist says there's a part of the brain where evil lurks. why he says a simple brain scan can actually predict criminal behavior. we're goi
